Tuscobia Winter Ultra

The 2016 Tuscobia Winter Ultra will take place January 8 – 10, 2016. A couple of important changes for 2016:

  • The race will not take place during the holidays: less snowmobile traffic
  • There will be two race distances: 75-mile & 150-mile

Registration will open in August 2015. The race format will be similar to previous years, with the 150-mile run/ski starting on Day 1 (Jan 8) followed by the 150-mile bike and all 75-mile races starting on Day 2 (Jan 9). All races will finish by 6pm on Day 3 (Jan 10).

We decided to drop the 35-mile race. We know this will disappoint a lot of folks but we wanted to simplify the event and focus more on the longer distances.

USA Nordic Has left the Launch Pad!

So this AM I received a message from a family member in Norway about a Norwegian NEWS outlet headline of the USSA Nordic Ladies Team  (http://www.dagbladet.no/2016/01/08/sport/idrett/ski/langrenn/tour_de_ski/42661693/ )

and how they are doing amazing at the 2016 Tour de ski! Minutes later Jessie DigginsWINS Stage 6! Sophie Caldwell hammered it out for a WIN on Stage 4. Folks this is CRAZY BIG NEWS! Email your local TV, Radio & Newspaper. These are days that will change the course of NORDIC in the USA for the future Generations. Do not sit by and let media discuss the wows of some of our other athletes or how some other country on the other side of the planet is going to screw up our economy ~ This is Positive Great Stuff! SPREAD THE WORD OUT THERE!
Also a HUGE Congrats to the USA Nordic Team and our Johaug Girls Jessie & Sophie on Amazing WINS!

2016 ~ A NEW Year Out There

WOW, Another year is in the books. 2015 wrapped up our 5th Season and Started our 6th. Crazy, Crazy to think that it has gone that fast. As we look back at 2015 we have lots of great things to reflect on~

1. A Growing business

2. An even larger CXC Master group


3. A growing Team Out There (19 Members now)


4. Great events

5. Much Much More!

As we deal with this El Nino Season many folks have not been Out There quite as much. Well no excuses. From Dryland to getting on Man Made snow there are lots of options and now Mother Nature is coming thru and producing GREAT Conditions.

As we look into 2016 there are already many things lined up.

1. The 2016 Birkie! Folks are already signing up for wax service. Again for this season spots are limited so don’t miss out.


2. Our Own Kristin Hanson will be part of the NENSA U16 Coaching Staff


3. We look to create even more great opportunites for all of you to Get Out There!


With that have a SAFE & Fun New Year and we look forward to seeing YOU Out There Soon!
